The Philadelphia Union’s relentless pursuit of success has paid off once again, as they clinch a spot in the 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs for the sixth year in a row.
From the very start of preseason training, the Union had one clear objective in mind: to turn potential into triumph for the City of Brotherly Love.
Under the guidance of Jim Curtin, the Union has steadily improved over the past five seasons. In 2020, they claimed the best record in MLS and lifted the Supporters’ Shield. The following year, they reached the Eastern Conference Final, and in 2022, they secured the Eastern Conference Championship. Each year has marked progress, and now, in 2023, the Union is determined to make a run at bringing the MLS Cup home.
The Union’s style of play, characterized by disruption and aggression, mirrors the spirit of the city itself and strikes fear into their opponents. With one of the league’s top defenses and a formidable trio of offensive talents who play for the badge and the city, the Philadelphia Union is primed for what lies ahead.
Having officially sealed their sixth consecutive trip to the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs, the Union solidify their status as one of MLS’s elite clubs. Their focus now shifts to securing home playoff matches, as they thrive on delivering victories to their loyal Philadelphia fanbase.
While the past three seasons have seen remarkable achievements, this year’s squad is determined to create their own playoff legacy. That means bringing the excitement of postseason soccer to Philadelphia and demonstrating what it truly means to compete in front of their passionate supporters.
